The Orthodox Study Bible, Hardcover: Ancient Christianity Speaks to Today's World
About this deal
From the first century AD Christians and Jews both used the Greek Bible, but they understood it differently, and as a result tension arose, and much polemical disagreement. The New English Translation of the Septuagint and the Other Greek Translations Traditionally Included Under that Title (NETS), published in 2007 (with corrections and emendations issued in 2009 and 2014), is a major scholarly translation based on the critical texts available at the time from Gottingen and Rahlfs semi-critical Septuaginta.
Not until the middle of the second century do we find evidence of original Christian writings – the Gospels, Acts and Epistles – appearing as scripture together with Old Testament Books.As such, those from other branches of Christianity may find it different from other versions with which they are more familiar. In the Septuagint it reads: ‘Behold, I will lay for the foundations of Sion a precious, choice stone, a highly valued cornerstone for its foundations, and the one who believes in Him will not be put to shame. I have just found out that the CEB (with or without Duerotocanonicals) is also gender neutral and also messed up Isaiah 7:14, just like the NRSV.
The Hebrew reads: ‘I was ready to be sought out by those who did not ask, to be found by those who did not seek Me.For those who desire more guidance to their devotion, morning and evening prayers are included as well as lectionary readings for those who follow the readings in the Church calendar. And among other things (I'm sure), used the Masoretic altered text verse which leaves out Cain's deceiving Able to get him to the field where he killed him.
Also included are lovely iconic paintings of scenes from the Bible as well as in the back maps of the lands mentioned in the Bible.The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, with its headquarters located in the City of New York, is an Eparchy of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, The mission of the Archdiocese is to proclaim the Gospel of Christ, to teach and spread the Orthodox Christian faith, to energize, cultivate, and guide the life of the Church in the United States of America according to the Orthodox Christian faith and tradition.
